As I walked past the roads
I could not see anything else other than you
I closed my eyes when I thought I realized
how much I missed you
everything on my way was just a reflection of you
As I closed my eyes,
even in the darkness of my eyelids
I could see your smiling face
It was as if you were imprinted on me
everything crystal clear
like a mirror image
I felt I was near you
and extended my hand to touch
yet as I spread out my hands.
I couldn’t touch you
you disappeared like ripples in the water
yet again, you appeared with a smile
inducing a smile on my face
I felt you were moving along with me
like a shadow …that never leaves me
I could feel your presence yet not touch you
I could feel your warmth, yet not be in your arms
I knew you were virtually with me always
as if you were with me holding the umbrella
and we walked together soaked in the ravishing rain
the strong feel of love was indeed the pulse for me.
The clouds were clearing, the sky became clear, everything around her seemed to be shining with the touch of sunlight. The dew drops everywhere seemed like diamonds reflecting the light into the world around her. The shining world, brought in a new path for her to move on. The world around was cleansed with the downpour. She felt the smoke and the dust in her path was cleared and everything seemed to be easily visible.
The ambiguity in her path was now gone forever. The world seemed to be happier and beautiful to her. She trusted the hands that took her, leading her path towards the bright world, where there was no sorrow, there were no doubts, there were no worries. She blindly followed the footsteps. Her trust in God was at its highest, she believed everything was for good.
The path led her to the new horizon, where she wanted to live happily with her family. The world she built up in the quest to attain the freedom of living was awaiting her. She grabbed the invisible hands and walked down the path, struggling through the thorns that were laid for her. She never lost her hope, she trusted her soul and walked towards her destiny leaving everything behind her.
The world seemed to be inviting, and there she was not walking alone to her dreams, she had all she wished for, the love, the care and everything in those hands that lead her. The security she was assured was beyond words. She blinded her vision to follow unquestioningly and undoubtedly.
She bends her neck, and he ties the knot, the knot forever, the bond forever, the love in the string that was now a part of her heart and soul. A string was enough to bond them forever into the art of marriage. The promise of being together in anything and everything in pain and happiness. To share the joy of being together, unifying into one soul.
